It is said That The best guarantee to find a good Restaurant is to find It full. That is El Cardenal, specially for breakfast a local favourite. A variety of fresh squeezed fruit juices, an unparalell sweet rolls, Home made tortillas and a Eifell variety on typical Mexican dishes. You would never imagine the richness and options you can find... More

When september comes around I invariably go to this restaurant for their great Chiles in Nogada. This time we were not in the main serving room but in the room at the end of the hall, I enjoyed seeing photographs of building, especially the Alameda Hotel, that sadly disappeared during the terrible earthquake

Yesterday we had lunch there, we were starving after an early flight. The service was very fast and we were suprised to get not only the regular salsa and tortillas while we waited, but also some fresh cheese and avocado. By the way, the tortillas are hand made. I had a pork and almond stuffed ancho chile with red mole... More

This is an above average restaurant in the lobby of the Hilton Reforma Mexico City. The selection for lunch was excellent. I had the Grouper with vegetables and it was great. The wait staff was attentive but not overly. Just be sure to pay with cash in pesos. When I received my bill, the amount was stated in pesos with... More

When visiting this restaurant you're choosing comfort, parking, amplitude, modern facilities/services and accessibility (highly appreciated features for locals) over colonial architecture, scenic view and outdoor seating (tourism stuff). This of course does not make this restaurant a bad option, service and food quality are way above average, specially for breakfast. Give a try to the specials recommended by your waiter!!!!

This is not the first time I have been at this restaurant and thought it was o.k. Unfortunately our lunch this time became a nightmare. The waiter sent to our table a "molcajete" which is salsa, cheese and tortillas, even though we didn't ask for it -and of course it was not a courtesy-. As I live in Mexico I... More

It is located inside the Hilton Hotel. It offers good mexican food with a more international taste. It is not spicy as locals like it, but it fits international taste.
